Though young, but already a famous author of books that made true furor, Dmitry Glukhovsky is also a journalist, a correspondent, and a radio and TV host. He was born in Moscow on June 12, 1979. Dmitry studied at school, specializing in the French language. He speaks 5 languages.

For some time Dmitry Glukhovsky lived in Israel, where he studied, and worked as a correspondent. Later he worked in a number of countries, including France, Germany, and even Abkhazia. Among his work merits one can mention the status of a Kremlin pool correspondent on the channels Euronews and Russia Today, work on Radio Russia and participation in the TV radio project Deutsche Welle. In 2008 Dmitry started working as a radio host at Mayak Station, and headed the popular sci fi Fantastic Breakfast broadcast in March, 2009.

Dmitry Glukhovsky gained international popularity as a web writer with his post-apocalyptic novel Metro 2033. After publishers’ refusal to publish his debut book the author posted it on his Live Journal and in a few large-scale online libraries, one chapter after another.

Following its stupendous success on the web the hit novel Metro 2033 was published by the Eksmo publishing house in 2005 and republished by the Popular Literature publishing house in 2007.

Afterwards Dmitry Glukhovsky wrote and posted on the web other books, such as Stories about Animals, The Night (collection), and the play Infinita Tristessa.

In 2007 the writer published his new novel under the title Twilight. At first sight it seems to be a thriller but is a mystic novel replete with metaphors.

Long-awaited Metro 2034 came out on March 10, 2009. Surprisingly, it was not the sequel of Metro 2033 but was another story with new characters.

The book Stories about Homeland was published by the ATS publishing house in 2010. The next book titled The Future (2013) describes the victory over such a global problem as aging.

Metro 2035 was completed in 2015.

Dmitry Glukhovsky is the holder of the Eurocon Award for the Best Debut of 2007.

Dmitry is married and brings up a daughter.
